Gilding Flakes

Hi Everybody,

A little while ago I added a card that had   Gold Gilding Flakes being used with the Spanish Collection - Seville  from Sue Wilson.

I had several emails asking me how I had made the card and so here is a short video to show you what I did.

The Seville die is from   JGDCrafts  and the Gilding Flakes are from  Indigo Blu  and they have many different colored mixes for you to choose from

The double sided sticky sheet I got at the craft  show but you can get than from many places

I have carried the theme through to the inside of the card so that it compliments the front

The ribbon is from my "Stash" but the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts

I have used the glitter from Glitter Magic to enhance the flowers

The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers

The video is only 10 minutes and I hope you will enjoy the effect once you give the Gilding Flakes a try for yourself .

  8. Lovely card Christina, thanks for the video it's really informative and I'm such a visual learner.

  9. Good morning Christina,
    I loved the video on the making of this card as i found it by accident last night. Another great idea and turns the segments under the die cut area lovely and different. I love the flowers and bows that you add to your cards as it turns a beautiful card into something that would look beautiful in a box picture frame and be more of a gift than a card.
    Love and crafty hugs
